Abigail Disney

Abigail Disney’s passion for women’s issues and peace-building culminated in her first film, Pray the Devil Back to Hell. She then created the groundbreaking PBS mini-series Women, War & Peace and premiered her directorial debut, The Armor of Light, at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival. Ms. Disney also founded the Daphne Foundation and Peace is Loud.

“The women and girls forced into prostitution in unthinkable numbers day after day are not simply an unfortunate fact of life. Their lives cannot be sacrificed to the idea that it is somehow an inevitable fact that men will always seek to serve their ‘needs’ in this way. Change is coming and now is the time to make it so. Abolition of demand. Abolition of exploitation and violence. Abolition of enslavement now and forever.”
